OBJSA nets are a design specifications language for distributed systems, combining the specification language OBJ with Superposed Automata (SA) nets. The paper introduces the notions of morphism and isomorphism for OBJSA net systems and shows that any OBJSA net system can be reduced to a unique minimal model. This allows the definition of equivalence classes of OBJSA models. A net semantics for OBJSA net systems, in terms of 1-safe SA net systems, and algebraic semantics, in terms of OBJ3 objects, are given and it is proved that all the unfoldings, and, respectively, all the algebraic specifications of OBJSA models belonging to the same class are isomorphic.
